Bob Petrecca - Star Lord
2014.07.20 Jersey Shore Comic Con, Toms River, NJ
Bob Petrecca started his career in 1990 at Marvel Comics as one of John Romita's Raiders. This eventually led to freelance inking and finishing work for Marvel, DC and Continuity Comics.
Petrecca has worked on titles that include Captain America, Thor, Doctor Strange, Hyperkind, MS. Mystic, Justice League of America, Green Lantern, Birds of Prey, Batman, Night wing, Scooby-Doo, Wonder Woman and many others...
